Why Travel & Mobility Tech?

Travel and Mobility have long been considered two separate industries. But the digital age and a user-centric understanding of the traveler journey have made both sectors closely intertwined.

One example: for the longest time, airlines have solely focused on taking care of the passenger while they are on board. But taking a plane from A to B is only one component of the entire door-to-door travel experience. Travelers need to get to and from the airport (mobility), need housing (hospitality), look for things to do at the destination (Tours & Activities), and wish for (digital) assistance along the entire trip.

To cater to the traveler of today, we need to renew our traditional understanding of industry sectors. The ecosystem of products and services along the entire traveler journey is what we have coined as “Travel & Mobility Tech” – hence the name of this website.
